Berkeley September 5 2021

Presentation Abstract

​In July, 2021, SID’s International Committee for Display Metrology (ICDM) announced an update to the Information Display Measurements Standard (IDMS), which is the display industry’s bible for display measurement and characterization. The update is called IDMS v1.1, and it is the first major update to the IDMS in over nine years. Over 250 pages of new content covers areas such as color capability characterization, high dynamic range displays, new temporal methods, and more than 100 pages on evaluation methods of near-eye displays for AR and VR. Prior content from v1.0 has also been expanded in many areas such as 3D methods, notably for light field displays, extension of the reflection chapter to include transmissive displays, spatial performance updates, and several other improvements. The update is both commercially and scientifically significant. This talk will take a look inside the newly-released IDMS, explaining how the new version addresses the needs of modern displays using the latest metrology methods.

IDMS v1.1 is available as a free download at the following link:
